On September 10, 2021, in honor of Giles. B. Jackson's birthday and as part of its year-long sesquicentennial celebration of Jackson Ward, The JXN Project partnered with Give Black Richmond to pledge a one-time philanthropic donation of $50,000 to support local institutions and|or initiatives that are rooted in and|or have a direct impact across the historic and|or historical footprint of Jackson Ward. This donation includes $1,000 donations to several grassroots entities and $5,000 grants to a handful of community organizations that will help to further expand the reach and impact of the donation across the ward — to include the Historic Jackson Ward Association, Virginia Union University, Richmond Black Restaurant Experience, and Jackson Ward Collective. Also, this includes a $10,000 donation to "The Adele Johnson Fund: Supporting Untold Stories" at the Black History Museum and Cultural Center of Virginia. JXN fully recognizes that there is an array of work being done across the ward and we're hopeful that we've captured a representative sample of that work.
